Cursed is a hardcore/punk band featuring former and current members of numerous other Canadian DIY bands spanning from the early 1990s to the present, such as Haymaker, Left For Dead, The Swarm, Acrid, Ruination, The Black Hand, Countdown To Oblivion, Quest For Fire, Crux of Aux and more. Formed in 2001 a year after the break-up of The Swarm (three members' previous band), the founding lineup was originally split between different parts of Quebec and Ontario Canada, but is currently based in Toronto and Hamilton. Known for their trademark nihilistic and dystopian lyrical themes, stark classic horror imagery and loud, abrasive live shows, the band have toured worldwide and released records on Boston's Deathwish Inc. Ontario's GoodfellowRecords, Syracuse's Hex Records and Providence's Trash Art Label.
Now, the band is at the brink of adding a new chapter to their shock and awe program,. In 2007 they finished recording their third CD/LP, "Cursed III: Architects of Troubled Sleep".. Produced at Toronto's Hallamusic studio, mixed by long time friend and collaborator Donny Cooper, and mastered by Alan Douches at WestWestSide (NJ), with cover art by Baroness' John Dyer Baizley.
In support of "Cursed III: Architects of Troubled Sleep", the band will tour Europe extensively in May, 2008. Be aware!
